Late Assignment Policy
- Homework: Homework is preparation for the day's work, so it is essential that homework is completed every night. Because of this, I do not accept late homework.
- Assessments: Assignments marked as "Assessments" will be accepted late with a 10% deduction for every day late.
- Assignments that are late/missing due to absence will be accepted for full credit as long as the student shows it to me the day of his/her return.
Posting of Student Grades
Grades will be posted in the Parent Portal (ParentVue) regularly. Please check student grades there on a regular basis and read any attached comments. I recommend students check StudentVue every other night, and to let me know if they have a question about a grade. Use the calendar view to check for assignment due dates.
I will round up grades that are 0.5 away from a higher letter grade, as long as the student has no missing assignments. For example, an 89.5 or above (B) will become an A as long as there are no missing assignments. It is important for students to remember the no-late-homework policy in order to be eligible for this rounding-up privilege.
